. you have a big group of new freshman republican members in the house. they are not budging. they're not listening to just about anybody. it's -- they're going on what they believe is a mandate with this big tea party election in 2010 and they haven't really budged. you're seeing business leaders on wall street saying do something, do anything. this group of freshman republicans aren't really budging. will it have been an impact heez emails and phone calls, who knows. it may mean that house republican leaders have to shift away from what these small group of freshman republicans want. we'll see if it has an impact or not. there's not a whole lot of time left. >> indeed. thank you so much. we will be talking with nbc's chuck todd in a few minutes. >>> the first tropical system of the year has fizzled out. tropical storm don has weakened into a tropical depression. the storm made landfall along corpus christie. it brought little relief to the record breaking heat in the lone star state. here's with your saturday forecast bill karins. good saturday morning to you, bill. >> all the hy
feeling. >> i can't wait to see you in new york. start that race together and give you a big hug at the finish line. >> sounds good. can't wait to see you. >> if you want to follow along with me or any members of the six-pack, logon to cnn.com/sanjay. thanks for being with us this morning. time now to get you back into the cnn newsroom for a check of our big stories. >>> this from the cnn center in atlanta, georgia, this is your saturday morning, k a.m. eastern time and i'm t.j. holmes. two developing stories. first the president summoning congressional leaders back to the white house for a saturday morning conference. this comes the day after the house speaker, john boehner walked out on debt talks. the president calling them right back. >>> also the developing story out of norway where at least 91 people have been killed in two separate attacks in norway. police there say these two attacks are, in fact, linked. still a developing story. we'll have the very latest for you live in just a moment. we need to begin in washington, d.c. with that looming deadline on the nation's debt.
worked out, check their lockers, talked with coaches, which they are now allowed to do. the big questions remain of donovan mcnabb. and in fact he was not here today. he is under contract ands is believed that he will be traded, probably to minnesota. rex grossman is a free agent but we believe he will be resigned. and that leaves us with john beck, who, as everyone knows, he is the starting quarterback. beck is in his 5th year out the byu, drafted in the dolphins in '07 and played with the ravens in 2009. a short time ago i spoke with the man who very well could be the redskins starting quarterback. >> john beck, as happy as anybody that the lockout is over. >> glad it is over and we can be back here working. >> and you're back to work and you've talked all along like you are going to be starter. as a quarterback, you have to be confidence. has mike shanahan told you something that he hasn't told us yet, or is there some inside info that you know you are the starter. >> it's just a competition, is what i've been told, the competition to be that guy and i feel confident in that competitio
finally came out publicly with a bipartisan, big, tough plan, a framework for how to deal with our very real challenge with our record deficits and debt. it's my hope that the senate will consider cut, cap and be balance, defeat it and then put a responsible plan on the floor, one that shares the sacrifice across all the areas of our budget and that puts forward the kind of framework that everyone can support. bill: okay. on the cut, cap and balance, so you agree with harry reid that this is a waste of time on a balanced budget. why would a balanced budget amendment when polls show 72% of those surveyed favor it, why would you be opposed to that, senator? >> i don't speak for leader reid, obviously, but what i think the leader was suggesting was that with ten days left until we default on america's mortgage, we should be focusing on things that have a very real chance of passage in both houses and that can avoid the catastrophic consequences of defaulting on america's debt. i think leader reid and many of us in the senate are concerned that if we simply keep ping-ponging back and forth
&p said they need to do to keep the credit rating at triple-a. >> how big of a concern is that? even with the plans the credit rating might still be downgraded? >> it's a very big risk, anderson. there's two different events here and it's hard to keep them separated from each other. the first is getting the debt sealing lifted. that's the critical negotiation under way now. even if we get it lifted, eric's right. standard & poor's is saying even if you get it lifted it's how much you're willing to cut the deficits that they will really judge the triple-a rating of the united states on and if it's something less than $3 to $4 trillion in real cuts they're going to lower the credit rating of the united states for the first time in our history. we've had it since 1917 we've been triple-a. there's a growing sense at top levels here in washington that the chances of a credit rating downgrade is becoming more than just a possibility but moving towards a probability. >> april, for those who haven't been following this as closely as everybody in washington and a lot of other folks have been
>>> good wednesday everybody. i'm contessa brewer covering the big news coast to coast. the big story we're watching right now, debt, deficit, downgrade, deadlock. there's six more days until the august 2nd debt default deadline. really, does anybody think there's going to be a deal? >> it can pass the house and pass the senate. i hope the president will consider signing it into law. >> the speaker's proposal cannot pass the senate, will not reach the president's desk. >> another day, another delay as washington tries to come up with a debt deal. today's breaking news a bipartisan group did the math on both the duelling democratic and republican debt plans and both come up short on their projected savings goals. democrats put their bill on hold. while republicans scramble to rewrite theirs. >> things are very fluid. >> today's house vote tabled while gop leaders try to get reluctant freshman on board. >> i want a solution, not a deal. i don't think this goes far enough. >> does this keep us in the battle. >> john boehner has a group of people that believe their way is the correc
of some instruments that could -- showing, you know, trouble in the lending market. >> the big question is, will washington let that happen, and right now that answer is not any clearer than it was yesterday morning. we begin with breaking news, though. this titanic struggle that's continued to go on right now to end the debt crisis before next tuesday's deadline. here's a live look at the capitol where overnight, infighting among republicans forced house speaker john boehner to yank his debt bill. they thought there was going to be a vote last night. there is hope he will try to pass it again today. in four hours the speaker will again sit down with fellow republicans and again try to entice just a handful of hardline conservatives to fall in line. >> the bill's not perfect. i never said it was perfect. nobody in my caucus believes it's perfect. but what this bill reflects is a sincere, honest effort to end this crisis in a bipartisan way to send it to the senate where it can receive action. >> now the speaker's bill would cut $900 billion from the budget over ten years in exchange for a
evening will be a big vote. the specific times aren't set, but we're into a series of days where these vote showdowns will be more and more important. a lot of the strategy will go behind the scenes. account various sides wrangle people to get them to their side? this will not be easy for either majority leader reid or boehner. >> kelly o'donnell for us, thank you. >>> joining me is congressman henry coyer and adam kinninger. gentlemen, good morning. congressman claire, the president asked the american people to call their congressmen, and we understand that some sites crashed, we're hearing that the server for the house is still down. what are you hearing? >> we're hearing from our constituents to make sure we don't have a default. we have to find a solution in a bipartisan way. i know there's two competing interests here, but i'm hoping that we get together and work something out. >> obviously congressman kinninger, a number of your colleagues said they would not support john boehner's plan, so i'm wondering if you will. >> well, i'll let every one of my colleagues speak for th
on this planet as we know it today. that is a very big deal. chris stirewalt joins me, fox news digital politics editor, i should say. so, chris, how long do we have on the planet, life as we know it? what's your take? >> i'm not buying anymore green bananas. [laughter] it sounds like we're headed into real trouble, doesn't it? martha: it sure does. >> well, look, the speaker -- the former speaker, pelosi, now the minority leader in the house demonstrates that before you get to the end on something like this, everybody has to say something totally over the top, and now she's taking her turn. the truth of the matter is we're probably closer now to a deal and closer now to a bipartisan resolution than we ever have been because as house republicans start to saddle up behind john boehner's plan getting over their grumbling about the fact that it doesn't give them everything that they want, it brings us closer to the final vehicle which will get republican and democratic support in the senate and move us on to an increase in the debt ceiling and some kind of a deal. martha: yeah. you know, there are
is anything more than a big wet kiss to the right wing, and -- and i mean the tea party. that's who i mean. it's too bad his caucus is being run by such a small number of people. >> what will happen between this very moment and a potential vote tomorrow is anyone's guess in the town that is washington, d.c. amid all the bickering and tinkering, the nation is just six days away from a first ever general default, and the treasury reiterating in a statement moments ago there is no guarantee the government can meet all its obligations after an august 2nd deadline, so what are the remaining options for our dysfunctional government? nbc's kristen welker is at the white house and let's also bring in luke russert on capitol hill. kristen, we know both sides are crafting their budget deals, both trying to take the high road, but are there any signs that the differences between the two sides are narrowing, and does it seem as though they may conflate these two plans? >> reporter: well, at this point we don't have any indication that they are going to conflate the two plans. we should say there are, of c
for a lot more spending cuts later on. they are running out of room to cut. you will remember the big spending bill earlier this year cut tens of billions of dollars. so if you take a step back and you look at the entire forest there's a lot of spending cuts going on. lot of real spending cuts democrats are arguing that they are going to hurt a lot of people. so those certainly are accounting tricks. in terms of that last little margin to get to the point where they are cutting more than they are raising the debt ceiling which is what republican leaders wanted to do, they needed to rely on some creative use of cbo accounting methods. >> right. this is also interesting, though. even if he does get john boehner, that is, the house, even if he does get the conservatives to fall in lynn and go ahead and vote for this, there seems to be question about whether it will get out of the senate. have you 53 senators, two independents, included who said they are not going to support boehner's proposal. now we are looking at another proposal perhaps harry reid's proposal which the cbo also downgra
reporter dovetails neatly with our big question tonight. keeping them honest, if a strong majority of americans is telling washington they want a deal on the debt crisis, they want these guys to compromise with the other side, they want a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. then why isn't washington getting the mage? we've got new polling that says all of that. and this is important. recent polling may also explain why we haven't got an deal yet. we'll tell you what we're talking about. in any case, americans are speaking out today. >> good morning, speaker boehner's office. how may i help you? >> a summer avalanche of phone calls hitting the capitol. president obama asked for it in his address to the nation last night. here it is. house switchboard today getting nearly double the volume of normal phone calls, house speaker baine er's office reporting as many as 300 people on hold for as long as an hour. online the same story. site unavailable. server busy. we found better than one in three congressional web sites either slow or down entirely from all the volume. also multiple
& friends" starts right now. >>dave: good saturday, everyone, a big news saturday. we thought the heat would be the big story. but anything but. a very serious matter. good to have you here for alisyn. >> all hell breaking loose in many parts of the world including in norway. >> we have new information of the shooting in the shotting massacre and bombing that happened hours apart in norway. >> this as the death toll from the attacks has gone up to 91. and greg is leave in london. greg? >>greg: we have been tracking this story through the night and hour by hour it is worse and worse and the words, the gunman as he shot the victims "you all must die," describing the scene, the prime minister, he turned paradise into hell. and now the events of the shocking attack right now. police now say that 84 people were killed on the island 20 miles from the capital of norway, one of the worst mass shooting sprees in history. the gunman was dressed as a policeman calling teens to come closer and then tee towns the guns on him, machine guns, rifles and pistols and the kids ran, hid, played dead, and tried
's going to be a big question mark as to how long mitch mcconnell will stay on that position and whether or not harry reid tables the boehner bill later today or tomorrow. there is no clear consensus on capitol hill over what they will do in order to raise the debt limit. there are ongoing negotiations between staffs, between mcconnell, reid, boehner all talking to some degree in unison. right now the gop wants to pursue the boehner plan which is a dead end in the united states senate. they're confident it's going to pass today. the rules committee meets at 12:50. john boehner said he was smiling as he left the meeting with his fellow members today, contessa. >> mike, let's go to you. we just found out from president obama's twitter page that he's even reiterating his request again for america people to call their lawmakers to demand a solution. the time for putting party first is over. if you want to see a bipartisan compromise let congress know. call, email, tweet and then he signs it barack obama. what's the white house hoping to accomplish by asking the american people to get involve
point. that's not a big deal. a lot of that is tied to greece and not what's happening in washington, is it not? >> reporter: let's put this into perspective. broadly speaking you could say the following. if there is no deal on this debt problem by that deadline in early august, if there is no deal you will probably see the stock market retreat big time. if surprise surprise there is a deal, and the debt ceiling is raids and we borrow some more money and we don't default, you can expect stocks to go straight up. that's the situation we are in. what i'm saying is you are going to see an awful lot of up and down with your money hour by hour. that's the way this week is going to be. bill: stuart varney. u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton is saying she is sure a debt deal with be reached. >> i'm confident congress will do the right thing and secure a deal on the debt ceiling. and work with president obama to take the steps necessary to improve our long-term fiscal outlook. bill: no coincidence she made those comments in hong kong. can both side make a deal? senator ron johnson, a ne

. >>> another big story, the debt ceiling debate, there is word of a major setback for house speaker john boehner's plan to raise not debt limit. the nonpartisan congressional budget office this evening reported the speaker's plan is short on its promised deficit savings, real short and the clock is ticking with the deadline just a week away. fox 5's tom fitzgerald back now from capitol hill and we're talking billions of dollars here. >> that's correct. the speakers office headed back to the drawing board tonight. the nonpartisan congressional budget office issued a report saying the speaker's plan would cut $150 billion less than promised. this development has thrown more confusion into a debate that's getting more complicated every day. facing pressure from conservative house republicans, speaker john boehner is still trying to lock down votes for his plan to raise the debt ceiling. >> we have a bill that is a reasonable approach negotiated with the senate leadership that really is common sense. there's more cuts in spending than you have in increase in the debt limit. >> reporter: the

mean they've got to pass something big and get it implemented quickly if we're not going to blow past that anyway. >> they really do. you heard secretary geithner yesterday saying that essentially we're running out of runway now and this is something that everyone has been dealing with for many, many months. what speaker boehner, according to one republican source, told gop lawmakers yesterday, is that they have to vote on some kind of a plan by wednesday and they have to post it on-line by today. so, you know, these are pretty tight deadlines that they're up against right now and last check, you know, they're still not close on a deal yet. nonetheless they have to get something done as he pointed out by wednesday to meet that august 2nd deadline. >> they don't have to be tight deadlines. >> never has to be tight deadlines. >> this is a crisis made in washington. >> as mark preston told me about half an hour ago, on the phone, he said guys, it's washington. that's -- >> this is how it always works. >> we'll be with you, talking many times. i have to tell you, grover norquist, the pres
said he would like a big plan in terms of making substantial cuts to show we are serious about cutting the deficit. he would also like us to carry the nation through the 2012 election, but today the white house chief of staff was asked about the two-stage or two-tier plan. here is how he responded. >> if there are two steps fine, but do not of a step in the second part that lets the political system show us dysfunction. get this deficit ceiling put off perhaps after the election but more importantly putting that off and giving certainty and lifting the cloud of default is begin a serious discussion and action on the deficit. >> reporter: so the way things stand, there are conversations going on the hill and lawmakers on the hill. at this point it's not clear necessity can achieve a breakthrough. the stumbling block continues to be revenues or cutting tax loopholes, however you want to look at it. >> gregg: asian markets will be open shortly. market reaction to a deal or no deal. thank you very much. catch more of chris wallace interview with john boehner and he talked to the treasury-s
the media has not done a good job portraying how big the taxes are to them. a lot of the member haves a religious fervor that any type of tax increase is not acceptable. boehner going from $800 billion in revenue could beç explainedo go up to $1.2 trillion which is white house suggested that wasn't a number is still open to debate was something is that boehner saw it as one aide told me impossible, a dis, they couldn't move it at all. >> one of if big issues is what are the markets saying and how are they reacting? it's been muted so far. i've talked to people, finance people who basically say that wall street is looking at this and saying both sides are talking about cutting spendsing and reducing the overall debt. so the conversation is at least focused on what they want to see and there's still a belief that they'll get it done before this is all over. i wanted to play a little bit of hillary clinton. she has been traveling throughout the world in asia, in hong kong today. this was her attempt tory assure the markets. >> very interesting choice of words from her. >> as i have tra
